Predictive Analytics and data mining
Sentinels (TARGIT patent) are digital watch dogs that give you warnings in advance. The most competitive companies are the ones that discover and react to market changes quickly and efficiently. With the Sentinel data mining technology, you can discover and react to changes faster than ever before.
Essentially, Sentinels are prediction based rules that will allow you to get an early warning. Sentinels warn you about possible changes in advance by expanding the timeframe for your notification agents (predictive analytics).
In order to use Sentinels, all you need to know are your key performance indicators (KPIs). After suppliying your Sentinels with that information, TARGIT BI Suite will automatically find out how to monitor your objectives in the best possible way. Accordingly, you will be advised when changes appear that could pose a possible threat to your objectives.
The Sentinels can be set up in just few clicks. After choosing your KPIs, the Sentinels will be listed according to 'confidence' level - this confidence level indicates the probability of changes in your data. After selecting the Sentinels you want to be notified about, you simply schedule them for ongoing data supervision.
Use Sentinels and spot future threats and possibilities... now!

Technically, Sentinels are rules that predict how data evolve based on how data have previously evolved (predictive analyses based on data mining). Of course, you make your choice as to how you react to the warning.
